The Future of Horror Part II: The Demon Nun film!

THE DEMON NUN FROM THE CONJURING 2 IS GETTING A SOLO FILM!

I love being right when being right means I am right about something amazing! That something amazing broke earlier today when Hollywood Reporter announced that James Wan and Peter Safran will be producing a Demon Nun spinoff! As you may or may not know, the Demon Nun is Wan’s latest terrifying creation in The Conjuring 2.

The Demon Nun stalks Mrs. Warren!

The Demon Nun was actually a last minute idea by Wan. Hollywood Reporter writes – “the shoot took place in March, just three months before the movie was scheduled to open on June 10. Some of the changes were minor: The art piece that Wilson is painting was altered digitally as the horned demon made way for the demon nun…”

Now that is simply amazing! That is a sign that this movie is destined to become a classic. I love little nuggets like this! I am so glad the God’s of creation blessed Wan with this last minute idea. I knew upon first sighting The Demon Nun would be the new face of horror. You can damn well expect to see awesome Demon Nun merchandise in the very near future.

In Part I of the future of horror article I talked about how The Conjuring 2 would change everything. The announcement about The Demon Nun film only confirms this. This is a perfect opportunity to explore the virtual reality experience! Give us that 4-D experience, baby!

Imagine this if you will: you reach the theater doors. It’s closed. On the doors are upside down crucifixes. The faint sound of The Demon Nun score spills out of the theater as you open the doors. You can’t see anything because thick smog is billowing from an unknown source. As you enter the theater, you trigger a motion detector that activates a animatronic of The Demon Nun! She lunges. You run to your seats, heart beating out of your chest. You fumble with your VR headset, wondering if you can handle The Demon Nun….Can I get an amen?

Go see the The Conjuring 2, folks. It’s one hell of a summer blockbuster!

The Conjuring 2: Elvis and Demon Nun for the Win!

I am in love with the horror genre. I wouldn’t be wasting away writing this blog if I wasn’t. With that said, I’ve had my fill of the supernatural subgenre. It’s not that I hate it; it’s like when you drink or eat too much of the same thing – your taste buds eventually get bored. My started getting board a couple years back. The Conjuring 2 was surely going to taste stale.

Holy shit was I wrong about this movie. James Wan and company simply killed it! TC2 is a white knuckled terror show that made my testicles retreat into my stomach. The moment I sensed something cliche coming – BOOM! Something completely fresh scared the living hell out of me. Yes, I jumped multiple times out of pure fright. I’m not afraid to admit these things. No chest thumping bro in this blog. One huge thing that caught my eye was the camera work. This time around he used Academy Award winning cinematographer Don Burgess (Forrest Gump). The camera was used as this devilish character that would force us to look where we did not want to. I love DP’s that know how to play with visuals.

Among the thrills and chills TC2 offered, it also did something completely original. There is a sequence in the 2nd act that involves something you would never expect in a horror movie. It’s something that no sane person would ever attempt in a Ghost/Demon film – James Wan pulled off a fucking musical number. I am not screwing around here! He had one of the characters sing an Elvis song. It was perfect!

I will stray from spoilers but we all know James Wan creates amazing monsters. This time around he creates his best one yet! DEMON NUN! If we don’t get a series of films with ‘it’ I will protest by writing my own script!

I am in love with the horror genre. I thought I had my fill of the supernatural genre; The Conjuring 2 prove me wrong. I actually have a new appetite for it…when it’s done in The James Wan way. The Conjuring 2 screams to be seen on the big screen. It is truly a blockbuster horror movie that will go down as one of the greatest horror sequels of all time.

4/4 stars
